Maybelline Colour Tattoo – On and On Bronze (aka Bad to the Bronze) Review

Maybelline Colour Tattoo Cream/Gel Shadow – On and On Bronze (aka Bad to the Bronze)




I had been wanting to try the +Maybelline UK Colour tats for a while now, and I kept forgetting and forgetting every time I popped into the high-street to pick one or two of them up to give them a whirl. I finally remembered, and I picked up the bronze shade – On and On Bronze – to see if what all the fuss was about?
 I have had it a few weeks now, and I have to say, at first, I was not very impressed with it, I just wasn’t so sure if it was the over-all texture, or the getting used to blending or the shimmer or whatever it was, but at first I was like ‘meh’. Then, I was going away this weekend ( to Belfast actually, I did the Titanic tour and everything I may blog about it) and decided to pack it anyway just in case. 

Well, my tune has changed I have to admit. Given a little bit of time with this and the right eye shadow primer, it became a really great shade for a night on the town for me. It does all the work for you when it comes to the start of a ‘smoky’ eye, in fact it even appears that little bit darker in the eye crease so you don’t even have to have a darker shade at the ready to deepen the look in that area. So you can skip an entire step in the eye routine, and hey, who doesn’t want that right?


In the photos, you can see the packaging of course – and the product itself in soft lighting – and more helpful I hope, in bright day light. 

Maybelline’s promise with this product is that it’s a

  • Dare to wear 24HR shadow with Ink technology creates 24HR wear shadow for our most intense, long-lasting colour saturation 
  • A Cream formula glides on without creasing and keeps colour vibrant. That it is also ophthalmologist-tested, safe for sensitive eyes and contact lens wearers ( I can attest to this as I am both a sensitive eye having person ;) and a contact lens wearer, and it didn’t irritate me on either fronts, so well done there!)
Now one of the biggest problems I have with eye shadows, as a glasses wearer is the creasing – obviously it’s going to happen with the condensation / extra heat and what not around the eye area when I wear my glasses day-to-day, and that’s fine. However, even with primer, this happens sometimes and it is a bit of a nuisance to be honest. Therefore, when something comes along and says its twenty-four-hour long lasting AND crease free, best believe I want to try these babies out to see if they do what they say on the tin … er pot. As well as all the hype that they fall under pretty decent dupes for the MAC Paintpots, it all seems very positive! 

Does this?

Yes and no. 

With glasses on, there is still a little creasing, but not a lot and I can deal with that. It doesn’t really fade throughout the day either which is also great, so the only thing you need to top up is your mascara or eyeliner where your eye makeup is concerned, and with contacts the creasing was limited and it blended easily. On the other hand, I would use this sparingly unless of course a dark smoky is the effect you’re after. I find for super pale Casper-esq ladies like myself it can almost appear too rich for day time, and it took me a couple of days to get a hand of just ‘how much was too much’ as far as application was concerned.  Overall though this was well worth a second chance and I’m glad I gave it another go. I really want to try out the rest of the range now to see what they can offer me!


 The pots retail for £4.99 and are currently on 3 for 2 in +Boots UK !
